Your home should be a place of comfort and security for your family. We all want our homes to be safe, welcoming, and certainly free from rodents that can carry disease and cause us worry.
Attic Crew specializes in providing top quality residential rodent proofing. Our highly trained rodent proofing technicians will inspect your home thoroughly, looking for potential entry areas for pests, as well as signs that you may already have some level of infestation.
When we Rodent Proof, we seal the structure searching for every points of entrance in the attic, top of the roof, crawl space, all the way around the property with materials that rodents cannot chew through.
We use Steel Mesh, Sheet Metal if needed, Concrete, expanded foam, wood and other materials.
Smaller rodents can make their way into the attic through spaces less than one inch in diameter. Vents and chimney pipes are common spaces where rats and mice get in, and larger animals might actually chew or claw through weak spots along the exterior of your home.
Identifying the areas where rodents find their way in is the first step in eliminating these pests for good.
Signs of Rodent Infestation
Even if you don’t see rodents, you might know they are in the attic because of what they leave behind. Before cleaning up this mess, you will want to completely clear the infestation and seal off the space.
Chewed Wires and Damaged Structures
Mice and rats are proficient chewers, and they tend to go after insulation, electrical wires, and wood. You might also note damage on your home’s exterior where larger rodents have chewed their way in.
If your attic is simply a storage space where you don’t spend much time, you might identify rodents by the noises they make. Scratching, scraping, and thumping noises in the attic are likely sound effects of a rodent infestation.
